Devon and Cornwall Officer Resigns

Post by Beachcomber on Thu Mar 02, 2017 7:55 pm

The public resignation of this officer has highlighted serious shortcomings in levels of cover and support for operational staff in this force.

From the Daily Mail

We all know that operational circumstances arise when staff can be temporarily depleted but when this becomes the norm then questions have to be asked. It is inevitable that , in such circumstances, officers are going to be left vulnerable, both from operational dangers and also the constant stress and worry that they are being over exposed to peril.

I have commented previously that it is possible that operational staff are now regarded as 'cannon fodder'. Forces seem to be hell bent on driving down the cost of on duty injured officers, both serving and retired, so that when injuries occur (as they surely will) it helps the 'public purse' if injured officers can be dispensed with on the grounds of 'poor performance' or, if IOD pensions are granted, then they are as small as they can possibly get away with..........just saying.....
